Subject: Mont Francis Morgan and His Universal Soil Test

Morgan's last soil test bulletin Number 450 was issued in October of 1941. This singular soil test system became the basis for the Carey Reams RBTI theory presuming that health could be related to minerals in the body. Ream's reasoned that Morgan's soil test was applicable directly to measuring mineral levels in both plants and animals and these mineral ratios determined one's degree of health and survival.

Morgan's Universal Soil Test is as useful today (2013) as it was in 1941. This single bulletin, in my opinion, is as seminal a work as the later research of Toshio Murashige and Folke Skoog's revised plant cell medium tissue culture that was published on April Fool's Day in 1962 in Volume 15 of PHYSIOLOGIA PLANTARUM.

Without air, water, or food, we cannot survive. With his system, Morgan has given all of us a simple and timeless method to determine the mineral levels needful to grow food and thus sustain all of mankind. It is a pity today that his name has not secured the fame due him.
